Here is a video of the TEDxNYED talk I did several weeks ago. I shared some thoughts about how the term assessment is being misused to represent grades and data, when it should be about guidance and support. I also talked about how design of educational technology should not be about controlling the learning experience, but instead about providing an open and flexible canvas for people to create and manipulate knowledge and ideas.
I think I was pretty ambitious with how things were staged on the slides because the editing doesn't always match what you see with what I am saying. It was an honor to be able to present on that stage with so many other terrific speakers.
